Can't get null modem usb to 9 pin cable to transmit designs to machine.


First, to transmit to your machine using a USB to serial converter, it should have a FTDI chip. Second, you should be transmitting on Com 1 or 2 -- preferably Com1. You can change the port it transmits on in the Device Manager in computer properties on your computer. Third, check on your machine which port it's looking for -- they must match.

Kenmore 19000 Scan Driver

I have bought a serial adaptor to connect my scan and sew to my laptop but I it keeps saying it can't find the com port. How do I get to to recognise the adapter?


Depending on the age of your computer, the COM port may not be connected or enabled.

When you start your computer, look for the command (usually DEL) to enter the BIOS.

Don't change anything but carefully search through the pages - the mouse doesn't work so you will need to use the cursor keys to move around the options.

You may find that the COM ports COM1 and COM2 are disabled in BIOS.

Selecting one of them and pressing the <RETURN> key should allow you to change the settings. Some times you just have to press the + and - buttons or the <PAGE UP> or <PAGE DOWN> buttons to enable or disable these features.

Pressing F10 on the upper row of keys should allow you to save the new settings.

You might also consider using a USB to Serial adaptor which save you a lot of trouble if you are not familiar with the BIOS system. The adaptor automatically sets itself up to communicate with the external device, in your case the scan and sew.

Hope this is of some help to you.

Connecting to the computer


You should have received a cable with your XL-6000 that allows it to communicate with your computer. The one that came with my machine has a pin type connector on both ends and it's known as a null serial port connector. I had to purchase another cable because the pin connector would not work with my USB ports on my laptop. I ordered one online and it came with a CD (driver) that you have to load to your computer to make it work. Another thing was that my newer version of Windows (7) would not run the conversion software that came with the sewing machine. There is a feature in Windows 7 that allows you to run software made for previous versions of Windows. Go go Control Panel>Programs>Programs and Features>Run software made for previous versions of Windows. Hope this helps.

How do I connect a 180e serial cable to my usb computer when Artlink and CPS software specify serial port?


I've not successfully managed this ... trouble-is that although you can get USB-to-serial converters, most computers that only have USB ports do not properly 'recognise' COM ports, which is what your Artlink software expects to talk to. I still use an old PC with a 'proper' 9-pin serial port on the back in order to talk to the old Artista range of machines. One of the drawbacks of a 'throwaway' PC industry that expects the rest of the world to continually update everything in response to new interface standards!

Trying to connect a USB to the serial port of a Bernina Sewing Machine (Bernina 170). Has been working for a couple of years and has stopped all of a sudden. Does not work on and XP PC, Vista or win 7....


The Dynex adapter does not have any numbers on it. It was the one that is only about a foot in length and has a square center piece that houses the conversion electronics. Standard 9 pin RS-232 male plug on one end and the standard USB plug on the other end. I purchased it within the last month at BestBuy here in Austin TX.

My Janome customizer 2000 will not write to the scan card. It says that it will not recognize the serial port.


Hi, I have the same problem with mine. Janome have not been very helpful. I didn't know if it was the card or the card reader/writer. I have a Janome CX500. Have you solved any of the problems?

I bought a Quantum XL6000 last August and I still can't figure out how to go from the computer to the machine or how to even use it. Help. What do I need to buy?


I have this machine, and you just have to hook up the machine to your computer using a serial cable. It should have come with one. If not, or if you don't have a serial (nine pin) port on your computer, you can buy a cable that goes from serial (nine pin on your machine) to usb (flat plug that goes to your machine). If you don't have the machine next to your computer and don't want to move it around (it IS very heavy) then you can buy software like Embird and a SmartMedia card. You have to also have a card reader either in your computer or hooked up to your computer. This can get expensive, but is much more convenient if your machine is in a different room. My computer already had the reader as a drive, since this card was popular in some digital cameras.

Pfaff 7570 connection to new XP laptop


In this FAQ list (from PFAFF web) you find 100 times the same question and answer:
H402 My new computer does not have any serial COM ports, so how does it communicate with my Pfaff creative 7570?

You will need to obtain a USB Serial Adapter, which adds a serial port to your computer by plugging it into a USB port. Suitable adapters can be obtained from Belkin [http://www.belkin.com] and Keyspan [http://www.keyspan.com].
The following USB Serial Adapters are known to work with the Pfaff creative 7570:
• Belkin F5U103
• Keyspan USA-19QW
Please note that the Belkin F5U109 is listed as working with the Pfaff creative 2140/2144 (FAQ #H405), but it does not work the Pfaff creative 7570.

call the people who made your computer (hp, dell) and ask for a down grade to XP and that will solve most all your problems that you will have with vista. vista has built in things that you will not be able to run alot of your programs on.
